On the Fence about GMO Foods?

If you are confused about all the talk on GMO foods, Dr. David Katz presents the best advice to the consumer I have read about this ongoing debate. The article provides some good news about new forms of soybean oil found in so many processed foods. It is about time we see some healthier benefits of genetic engineering instead of just for the purpose of promoting the sale of Roundup (glyphosate) by Monsanto.

I am  more concerned about the presence of glyphosate in our food due to the increased use of it not only on food crops but other applications in our environment. Is it carcinogenic ? – there is no definitive answer yet.
